If you’re a fan of concrete as a rich interior material, this just-listed West Soho will definitely impress. The 4,000-square-foot duplex is decked out with concrete columns, floors, and ceilings. This industrial chic space also offers a flexible floor plan, with a 30-foot-wide and 68-foot-long great room that allows for a number of configurations. Currently, it’s set up as a two-bedroom home with a studio art space and a casual media lounge. The creative, well-designed residence is located within the 18-unit condo at 481 Greenwich Street, and is now asking $5.25 million.

Mike Myers’ penthouse in Soho has hit the market again, but this time the pad at 72 Mercer Street is listed nearly $3 million cheaper. First listed for $16.95 million in 2015, the comedian then tried adding another unit for a combo price of $21.5 million a few months later, but no one took the bait (h/t Curbed NY). Now, the spacious duplex is currently asking $13.95 million. The 4,204-square-foot penthouse includes 3-4 bedrooms, a private roof deck, super high ceilings and massive skylights.

This one-bedroom condo at Soho‘s 118 Wooster Street is offering up plenty of unique features to its next buyer. For one, the 1,250-square-foot interior got a cozy sleeping nook to hold a second bedroom. Then, under 20-foot ceilings, a massive great room, plus a formal bedroom, await. The stairs take you up to a glass atrium, which opens to an 800-square-foot roof deck with a water and electric hookup. For all these indoor and outdoor perks, it’ll cost $2.649 million.

From the mother-of-pearl shower with aromatic steam to the vaulted mahogany master closet, this dark and luxurious lair is stocked from stem to stern with custom perks that go way beyond the $7.9 million loft’s private key-locked elevator and smart home system. Located in a classic pre-war Soho loft building at 459 West Broadway, the 3,150-square-foot space is even outfitted with a secret home gym hidden behind a moving bookcase.

This gigantic three-penthouse combo is owned by the celebrity photographer Ken Nahoum, who’s captured everyone from Robert De Niro to Michael Douglas to Dr. Dre to Johnny Cash. According to Mansion Global, he began living in the cast iron SoHo building, 95 Greene Street, in the 1980s after it was converted to residential use. In 1999, he bought up a 1,231-square-foot apartment here with his now ex-girlfriend, Victoria’s Secret model Basia Milewicz. Then in 2002, he bought the two adjacent penthouses and the rooftop section. Now it’s a massive showpiece penthouse, with 8,200 square feet of interior living space alongside five outdoor terraces totaling 4,000 square feet.

There are glass staircases, too

Yes, that’s a magic carpet hanging from the ceiling of this SoHo co-op… or at least we’re pretty sure it is. This apartment, located at 11 Charlton Street, is actually full of quirks. Besides the ceiling decor, a sliding partition separates the living room from the bedroom transforming this from a studio to a one-bedroom apartment. Outside, a koi pond sits in the spacious, 700-square-foot private garden. This unit has been on and off the market for about a year now, asking as high as $1.795 million. Now it’s back on with a new listing price of $1.55 million.

Vault lights in Soho, via WooJin Chung for 6sqft

In many parts of Soho and Tribeca, the sidewalks are made from small circular glass bulbs instead of solid concrete. Known as “hollow sidewalks” or “vault lights,” the unique street coverings are remnants from the neighborhood’s industrial past when they provided light to the basement factories below before electricity was introduced. These skylight-like sidewalks first came about in the 1840s when these neighborhoods were transitioning from residential to commercial and when their signature cast iron buildings first started to rise.

Meg Ryan’s 4,100-square-foot apartment at 84 Mercer Street in Soho has been officially scooped up for $9.9M, LLNYC reveals. 6sqft previously reported that the actress had listed the full-floor home–which she bought from fellow actor Hank Azaria for $8 million in 2014–for $10.9 million back in February of this year. After a designer gut renovation and a spread in Architectural Digest, the three-bedroom home didn’t stay on the market long—it went into contract just three months after Ryan listed it.

New York City developers have been increasingly competing to seek environment-friendly accreditations based on standards like Passive House, LEED and wellness to distinguish their offerings. Recently “Zero Waste,” defined by the U.S. Zero Waste Business Council as, “achieving over 90% diversion of waste from landfills, incinerators and the environment,” is rising in popularity, with good reason: Certified buildings won’t be generating the mountains of garbage that are the bane of NYC living. 565 Broome Soho, the under-construction condominium tower at the crossroads of Soho, Hudson Square and Tribeca, hopes to be Manhattan’s first Zero Waste-certified residential building, CityRealty reports.
